Teen Dancer Wows With Gorgeous Hip-Hop and Ballet Performance

Annika Verplancke is a teenager with a cause—the 14-year-old Belgian-American is a self-styled “dancer against cancer,” shows off her moves and moving the hearts of over 3,000 followers as on Instagram. In this video, the vivacious and talented dancer performs a beautiful and curious hybrid ballet/hip-hop routine (with hybrid costume to match), at the Youth America Grand Prix 2015 European semi-final in Paris, with choreography by Magali Berael and Fundi Omari, performed to the music "Heart Cry" by Drehz. Watch, and be amazed.

 Annika’s most recent post on her YouTube channel shows fans her stretch routine, and she has also shared videos of her own choreographed routines and other performances.
